The plan will be to get an early start (~7am meetup in NW Calgary) to scramble up Ghost Peak (aka Kink Peak), north of the true Ghost River area.  The weather forecast looks reasonable, but there is a chance of rain in the afternoon.  Expect a 16 km round trip day with 1000 m of elevation gain, with travel through moderate scrambling terrain.  If we have time, energy and the weather is good, we can extend the day to bag Sheep Meadow Mountain (aka Fallen Peak).  Note that the approach has a marshy section - a change of shoes & socks may be a good idea.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
